Facing the challenges of tomorrow with the techniques of tomorrow!
In order to empower us and our customers, we work together on new methods and tools.
In our work, we use state of the art technology and constantly develop it - and us!
Safe release and reliable series operation through continuous real-time capable monitoring of the environment perception of autonomous vehicles (since June 2021)
This research project develops a monitoring architecture for self-diagnosis of autonomous driving. Nowadays, environment perception systems of autonomous vehicles use extensive AI-based algorithms. Established techniques and methods for proving safety are reaching their limits. Even if many driving scenarios have been defined and millions of kilometers have been driven for testing, a comprehensive guarantee of safety during design time is not possible. The goal of the SafeWahr project is to detect violations of safety-critical specifications and uncertainties of AI-based environment perception systems of autonomous vehicles in time. The project is funded by the BMWI.
Model-based system engineering with SysML and SPES methodology (2020-2023)
Numerous cyber-physical systems with which people interact on a daily basis are being equipped with increasingly powerful functionality at a rapid pace, for which the steadily increasing networking of systems is not the least responsible. For example, systems in the mobility domains (automotive, avionics, and rail) are characterized by ever-new functionality that offers impressive innovations for automated control of systems and services for humans. In many application domains, these innovations are enabled by a complex interaction of sensor systems and networked software of the cyber-physical system.

Software Platform Embedded Systems Dissemination and Transfer (2016 - 2018)
In SPEDiT, Validas AG is developing a concept for the gradual introduction of model-based approaches in companies. The following modeling areas are considered: requirements, functional hierarchies, architecture, testing, process and safety.
The aim is to support the dissemination of techniques and the integrated, overall methodological approach to the development of embedded systems and to lay the foundation for standardized methods, techniques and processes in this field. The widespread industrial application of SPES results is further enhanced by providing integrated tool chains that are suitable for professional use in complex development organizations.
For the work in SPEDiT, Validas AG is financially supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the project number (Förderkennzeichen) 01IS15058H.
